At A shows always have a white shirt under your jacket or a very not eye catching color - no pinks or yellows. A pale blue or purple but try to stick with white. You do have to wear jackets on the main classes ( weekend ones usually) schooling classes a white or black polo is fine. But be really with a jacket on the main showing days.
White square saddle pad, your not in the hunters so don't wear a fitted pad.
Don't get your horse all color coordinated with saddle pad,polos, fly bonnet exc. Less is more and keep it simple. I would suggest showing in boots/ what you usually ride in at home but if you ride in polos keep them a black or dark color, white looks nice until they get dirty. Don't wear a big frilly fly Bonnet and if you use earplugs I would suggest buying a custom fit or a good one without the string that goes around the throat latch.
Always wear a belt, hair up neatly under your helmet, prepaid to ride in gloves on the big show days . It makes the whole picture look better with a jacket Posted via Mobile Device
